« Part 4: Front part 1, Chapter 3 Part 5 of VW Bulli camper bus series Part 6: Small cabin parts, Chapter 5 »

.
This is the blog of the building of the VW bus according my pattern.
.


.
.
This build is from the prototype and after this is done I always do some changes in the drawing where necessary. So the final plan is a little (better) different. I used mostly Chery and Ash for the build.
.
. Comments are much appreciated.

Looks Perfect. Similar process as for making a feature ring segment for a segmented woodturned vessel.

You make it look too easy…

PS. I am convinced that Dutchmen are crazy… no not your emblem… or even clogs… can even ignore the dykes, the Amsterdam pot cafes and rubber bands for clamps… BUT… a plane over a metal jaw vice,

it’s not like you’re playing with big hunks of trees…

Are you crazy? Have a second watch and you will see that the knife is free from the vise.

I keep telling my missus that 3” is LONG… Now, if that was true… you have clearance…however, in real life the distance looks short…

Nevertheless… I did note that you are “clear” of the vice… just… OK, my (little) bad! I just cringe when I see cutting blades near metal… and complimenting you for everything was getting boring…
